Abstract or Summary
  • The Min protein system in Escherichia coli helps the cell division process by identifying the center of the cell [1, 7]. This system has been modeled succesfully computationally under standard conditions. There has been recent experimental interest in the cell division process for significantly perturbed cell shapes. We take the existing computational model, and extend it to such a perturbed shape. We find that the existing computational model does not agree with these newer perturbed shapes, but that several interesting conclusions about the stability of the oscillations in larger cells can still be drawn. Furthermore, we explore an alternative model as a potential avenue for future work.
